Just a good friend.

This blog is devoted to the only thing that really matters – your well being. This is the starting point of all great achievements. There are no improvements of any sort whether for you nor for others if you don’t build a stable mental and physical environment around yourself. What that means in detail we will cover later on. Time is our secret ingredient so don’t waste it and start by reading the first article.

I never met you and chances are high that we never will but nonetheless is it also beneficial for me when your life improves. 

We humans are social-orientated. Some more, some less but what this in general means is that we are in a permanent interdependency to our peers and our environment. Improving your life means sending positive signals out to others that can enhance the possibility of leading them to improvements and so on and so forth.

This world needs positive role models, especially when it is so easy to get mixed up with dangerous influences over social media. 

We need you to live a happy and fulfilling life to state a positive example and inspire others in this times of permanent influence. 

We it makes sense to improve the life of others as well we will cover later on. Now get started and read the first blog article. 

It’s nice to have you on board.

Survival Guide 2021

Congrats. You're about to change your life for better and ever.

Level 1
9th January 2021
Short: We all live in different realties regarding the associations and opinions we have about certain terms and definitions. So convincing someone entirely about something or someone being right or wrong is quit impossible and the wrong approach.
Explained:

In Life Coaching you learn early on that there is no objective reality. There are as many realities as people on earth as everyone of us grew up on different paths, focused on different things and collected different memories.  

We all have different pictures in mind when talking about the same term like freedom for example because we all experienced different variations, benefits, drawbacks and types of freedoms. 

And our opinions which are profoundly individual and different shape our communication. 

Telling someone something is wrong in a specific case can easily been disregarded from your partner as your partner has different standards for wrong and different experiences connected to the specific situation. 

If you really understood the insights of the first part you’ll surely understand that there is no winning in a fight. 

The best way to resolve an argument is firstly to put a break between as the parties will need a moment to evaluate the former arguments and the further options. 

Then focus on the core terms that describe the issue best and start each to define the personal meanings of the specific terms. 

Example: A couple is arguing about the missing trust in their relationship. First task is to define what means trust for each one of them and then to lay out which actions resemble their ideas of trust best. 

To seek a compromise is the key. A lot of people see a compromise as losing the game but remembering that we all live in different realties with different expectations and meanings it is the most successful way of ensuring positive long-term relationships.

Level 2

Short: It is human nature to adapt to our environment and unlearn or avoid activities that are not securing our survival or are not performed in a fair frequency. 
Explained:

New years resolution so innocent as durable.

It is an absolute understandable and common wish to strive for improvement. Unfortunately does our body and brain follow this path only till the basic needs are covered: We got a place to live, we’ve got food on the table, someone to talk to and something to spend or waste time with – this will suffice. 

In other words when at least the first three levels of Maslow’s Pyramide (Basic needs, need for security, social belonging) are fulfilled the strive for more develops to a real struggle as the basic needs are already fulfilled and with that the foundation of survival ensured. 

To want more now is a – regarding to our primal instincts – unnatural behaviour and with that needs to be trained. 

Training is a process of stress and stress is triggered to create the awareness/mode of flight or fight in us and  since in the modern civilisation the need to fight grew less the first tactic won more importance over the time. 

That means in other words that we have to force us into for the mind and body stressful circumstances.

We do this as long as dopamine or other gratifying substances are created but as in most parts of life they are not always reproduced in the same activity as we move deeper from conscious to unconscious awareness and with this take them for granted until a new variation of it takes places. 

Example: After my first workout ever I will feel exhausted but more importantly happy, because I can tell and feel that I did something good and beneficial. After my tenth workout I’ll feel less enthusiastic as I already did it for sometime now and still witness no life changing effect. And slowly but surely I get bored of it because we humans are not naturally wired to work for long-term benefits. We are triggered to ensure our daily survival and contentment and not what might be weeks, months or years ahead of it.

So what to do now?

For that look into the answer “How to get more done”

Short: Setting triggers activate subconscious workflow patterns and with that let you perform a chain of actions with less to none intensive thinking or physical struggle.
Explained:

The experiment of Ivan Pavlov, a Russian physiologist, with a dog regarding the establishment of conditioned reaction patterns are known to most behaviour or physiologist students.  In short Pavlov connected the ring of a bell to the salivation of the dog, an unconditioned response of the animal to food. To train this behaviour he rang the bell whenever food is being served so that the dogs associated the sound of the bell with the act of being fed and started to salivate, and this after conditioning even when no food was served at all. 

How we can use that? Search for something you enjoy doing and something you know you should do but hate/dislike. Important is that you then only do the activity that you enjoy in combo with the necessary one. It has to turn into a subconscious, automatic workflow. 

For example: Many people hate to workout but know that it is necessary. Many people enjoy their favourite Netflix show instead. A helpful pattern would now to look at the average length of your favourite TV show and train at least the half of this length before watching an episode. If you plan to watch two episodes you have to double the time. In YouTube you find a lot of workouts which are even timed to a specific length. Just type in the amount of time you plan to workout and smash the search button. And yeah, you always have to start with the task you enjoy less. In this way you have two benefits at once: 

1.) You did something necessary and beneficial in your life and accomplished at least one task with positive sustainable aftereffects.

2.) Your show feels twice as good because it turns into an earned merit. So you earn twice the amount of dopamine (twice of the average joy the show would normally produce).

Here some patterns:

Throwing out the trash > reading two jokes

Working out > Watch one episode of your favourite TvShow 

Cleaning the room > while listening to your favourite album (It needs to be always the same list/track to create the pattern)

Mediate > eat
